Seattle Sounders at Columbus Crew: Player ratings

I won’t sugarcoat it, this was a debacle, a disaster, a downright embarrassing soccer match that took me over a week to process and hours to put my thoughts into words. Seattle was hesitant, tentative, and unable to deal with the intensity and pressure that the home team presented from the first whistle. The final was 3-0 and Columbus rather comfortably hoisted the MLS Cup at home, with Sounders fans left to ponder how it all went wrong. Seattle was thoroughly outplayed in the first half, failing to show much fight against the Crew, who came out pumped up, dominating with intensity and skill like the Sounders hadn’t seen this season.
